WHY WE GIVE?
God has been good to us and we respond by giving back to him through the local church where He has placed us. The Bible encourages us to give regularly, sacrificially and cheerfully. It is with thankful hearts that we give our finances back to God as an act of worship.
All money that is given to Nantwich Elim is carefully stewarded. It is used to cover salaries, building costs, administration, and mission here in Nantwich and overseas. In these days tithing is a test of our faith but when we take this step this verse from Malachi 3:10 becomes our testimony: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this”, says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”
We appreciate all those who have continued to give generously during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, and especially those who allow us to reclaim 25% extra from HMRC through the Gift Aid scheme. However, this is just a reminder that it is important that all Gift Aid supporters keep track of their taxable income and ensure that the tax that is/will be paid for the 2020-21 tax year will be sufficient to cover their giving through the Gift Aid scheme. This is especially important for any of our supporters who may have been furloughed over the past few months or even some who may have been laid off. This could also apply to self-employed people, depending on whether you were able to continue working during this time or not. When giving online, you can choose whether to Gift Aid the gift or not, but it is important to note that online gifts and Standing Orders from those already registered will automatically be recorded under the Gift Aid scheme regardless of the setting of this option, as the choice only applies to ‘first-time’ gifts. If you realise that your circumstances have changed, and you are no longer able to take part in the scheme, please send an email for email@example.com as soon as possible so we can amend our records. Please also inform us if your name/address changes, as we need to ensure accuracy of these records as well. If anyone would like to know how much they have given under this scheme so far this (tax) year, please email as above.
